The last project we have done has been a real challenge and a pleasure for us. It is an Custom Imperial Knights army composed of 2 boxes of Imperial Knights Chainbreaker Lance. The client asked us to follow an original painting scheme for miniatures combining blue and gold tones to give contrast to the set.
For the assembly, we decided to magnetize the multiple weapon options available, which allowed the client to change them according to his needs. In addition, we painted the project to our Ornate level and took care of every detail, even on the Warhammer miniatures bases.
As for the decoration, we used a variety of white decals to contrast nicely on the blue armor plates. We have also added OSL lighting effects on the orange lenses and machinery to generate a very powerful visual impact that will not go unnoticed in the games.

I want the army of my dreams
I’ve been planning to embark on an Custom Imperial Knights project for some time now and the release of this new box seems like the perfect time to start. In the future, I would like to continue to expand my collection with a variety of Forge World models.
I want to create a custom paint scheme that incorporates blue tones, gold trim and a white heraldry. My goal is for the models to look imposing and stately, showing no signs of battle damage or weathering. I would also like the models to be set in a ruined city, advancing through rubble and ruins.

After careful planning and design of the color scheme, our team of artists began work on this exciting IK project. Adapting the color scheme was a process that required a lot of attention to detail, but we finally managed to find the perfect color ranges for the job.
After several color tests and with everything ready we started to bring these metal giants to life. There were a lot of weapons to magnetize and paint without losing anything along the way. Adding the orange OSLs to the scheme gave it that final touch it needed and the ruined city looked spectacular with the use of 3D printed bits.

I am impressed with the level of detail and quality of work done on my IK project. The custom color scheme is just what I had in mind and the use of OSL on the lenses and machinery adds an extra dimension to the whole.
